My Approach to Helping

The relationship between an individual and therapist is the foundation of therapy. The goal of this collaboration is to build a trusting, safe relationship that helps a person explore the challenges that brought them to therapy and to identify ways to cope with those challenges.

This therapeutic relationship offers awareness of the ways in which emotions, thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and relationships affect our ability to cope with life. Understanding how the past affects the present offers insight that can help us cultivate skills that empower us to manage daily challenges.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I have experience working with individuals, couples and families struggling with interpersonal conflict, developmental and learning disabilities, addiction, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, trauma and brain injury. I specialize in providing counseling services for individuals coping with addiction; including those who are receiving medication-assisted treatment and are prescribed medications such as buprenorphine, methadone, naltrexone, and other medications used to treat alcohol and opioid addictions.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

I believe that therapy is a collaborative relationship. The goal is to work together, to form an alliance and develop trust that we can use to explore life's challenges. Everyone has strengths and everyone has faced challenges. The purpose of therapy is to create a non-judgmental environment in which a person feels able to address their needs.
